    I've already asked for the CPU, so if you do have an interest in the board alone maybe you would want to explore the possibility of the sale? I'm still looking, btw.

    FS: Desktops Price Drop : Intel Core i5 6600K + Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 3

    I totally understand, no problem. I already have a motherboard, an MSI Z170-Krait something something. I also have that same CPU doing duty in another z270 machine and need to run Windows 7, hence the requirement for Skylake only. Anyway, good luck with your sale!

    Car & Bike Government to make ABS mandatory on motorcycles and scooters in India

    Maybe you need some reading material instead of jumping to conclusions without reading an entire post... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-lock_braking_system Most of Indian road surfaces can be considered gravelly. The problem is that ABS prevents wheel lock, nothing more and nothing less...

    Car & Bike Government to make ABS mandatory on motorcycles and scooters in India

    This is terrible news and not a good move. ABS increases braking distances in almost every given case when all else remains same (so upgraded rotors and discs are required - which you can expect manufacturers to skimp on), and people who are not used to ABS usually are a big cause of accidents...

    Amazon files SEC report, misinterpreted as shutting down operations in India

    That, in my estimation, was the exact issue :) We expect a much higher standard. Specially from senior members like you. Now the whole thread looks better after the cleanup!

    Amazon files SEC report, misinterpreted as shutting down operations in India

    Is this thread about: 1. Online versus offline stores? 2. The fake news that Amazon is considering a discontinuation of their service in India? Do news posters have any responsibility towards verifying their news? Or is the news section here supposed to be filled with half-truths and gossip...

    Amazon files SEC report, misinterpreted as shutting down operations in India

    ?? When is an SEC filing construed as plans? It is a risk factor statement that needs to be declared to the SEC by all companies listed on the NYSE and must contain a statement of all possible risks that may affect the American investor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEC_filing Seriously, what...

    PC Peripherals How is Corsair RM 1000W

    I think it could be. No guarantee that the noise will be any lower. It just seems quite pointless to add 100W of TDP and only 150W of power, that too a lower quality unit. Good Luck though.

    PC Peripherals How is Corsair RM 1000W

    Why are you looking for an upgrade? The 290x has a TDP of 300W vs The 6970 @250W. This means 100W for two cards (comparing to my setup which also has a full custom loop etc). The maximum load I've ever seen is 700W including the monitor (which draws 200W at full tilt). Let's say 550W for the...

    Audio Question: Audio Set-up for tests

    Wireless headphones come in three types. 1. Optical. Needs direct line of sight. These are usually around the Rs. 1k mark. There is no power issue but the line of sight is very critical and the loss is quite large when you go off-line (visually)...

    Audio Question: Audio Set-up for tests

    If the wireless headphones are RF based, usually tuning them into the same band will be enough. If the transmitter cannot keep up (has insufficient transmit power) you may need to parallel their inputs. A Y-cable should allow two transmitter units, which should be all right for four...

    Budget 5-10K Phone for senior citizen

    You could at least have the courtesy to read the post and the associated links before getting all frothy at the mouth. The 630 is NOT a replacement for the 620, just as the 530 is not a replacement for the 520. They sell side by side, with the latter costing 40-50% more than the former. That's...

    FS: Video Card GTX 770 seal packed, 5 yrs warranty, 3 free games

    I don't want anything from you, to be perfectly clear. The warranty is not transferable. Read the T&C. If you sell the card, you have to provide warranty for the next 5 years. You. Not Zotac. https://www.techenclave.com/community/threads/q-zotac-warranty-details.101821/ Also read...

    FS: Video Card GTX 770 seal packed, 5 yrs warranty, 3 free games

    It's the FK big billion card at 17k+10% cashback. I got two of them myself. As you can see, this particular one was bought for the express purpose of resale and profiteering. Please note that the warranty only extends to the original purchaser on the proof of purchase, i.e, name on invoice...

    Budget 5-10K Phone for senior citizen

    The phone arrived today and I spent a few hours setting it up. Also she began 'using' it, the quotes are due to the fact that I didn't realise it needed a micro-SIM so as of now it is operating without a phone network. I must say the reason for getting it is served to the T. The large...

    Getting items shipped from ebay to India?

    I've been buying from ebay.com for about seven years now and before they even existed in India, most recently Asian sellers but also Russian, American and European. IME they are much, much better experiences than buying from the jokers on eBay India. I am sad to admit that most sellers on eBay...

    CPU/Mobo Will AMD 955BE be bottleneck with GTX960 ?

    SSD will help in gaming, contrary to popular belief, if you have the game data loaded to it which most people don't. Level load times reduce significantly and this may be an advantage for games that need it, like Deus Ex 3 and some of the NFS titles. In some games with in-level loading like...
